Terry's Reading Walkabouts
***Unfortunately, Terry is temporarily out of action due to an injury. He hopes to re-start his walkabouts as soon as he is able to, and all of us at What's On Reading wish him a speedy recovery***
I set up my guided walks with the following aims/objectives:-
1. To get fit and to pass on my love of local history/culture, famous people, battles, architecture, gardens, buildings, events and so much more in a fun way about Reading.
2. All monies go to manly local charities as a retirement hobby.
Being very successful, I now have 8 different Walkabout Routes/Themes:-
1, Main Town Centre - I talk about our Abbey, 5B's, famous people stories, dispelling 2 Myths.
2, Reading to Caversham return via Thames.
3, Famous/Not-so-Famous Women of Reading Part 1 - 12 Women.
4, Famous/Not-so-Famous Women of Reading Part 2 - Further 22 Women.
5, New Baker Street/Downshire Square Conservation Areas.
6, Reading's Famous New & Old Architecture.
7, Reading's Proud Photographic Heritage.
8, Reading Famous Crime & Criminals.
I have raised over £6,500 for local charities in the 3 years I have been operating.
